Tracy Butler

Tracy Butler (full Tracy J. Butler; born in 1980 in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA), is an 2D and 3D artist. She is the creator of the webcomic Lackadaisy.

Biography[edit]

She studied biology for a year at Our Lady of the Elms College in Massachusetts, before returning to her art. She created a website with some of her work, which led to a job offer from Simutronics, a Missouri game development company.

Tracy performed illustration and graphic design work before moving into 3D character design and animation. After living in St. Louis for some time, she purchased a 100-year-old house, and began researching its history, as well as that of the local neighborhood, and ultimately the history of St. Louis itself. Combined with her interest in jazz music, plus the characters she had designed in school, this led her to create the Lackadaisy series in July 2006.

An Italian print version of Lackadaisy was released in 2008, with an English version in 2009.[1]

Fandom involvement[edit]

Tracy Butler was a guest of honor at Furry Connection North 2009. Despite creating a fair amount of anthropomorphic work of furry interest, she prefers to not consider herself a furry artist.
